Wildlife sound recordist Gary Moore has challenged me to identify a new sound. Any ideas?

Can you identify the sound from May 29

Join me at 3pm on BBC Two and all will be revealed. We'll update this blog with the correct answer shortly afterwards. Good luck!

The answer is: a noctule bat

    Solent Industrial Estate, Hedge End - two Woodpigeons landing on top of a building this afternoon - one was albino.

    Definitely NOT domestic pigeon (rock dove). First time I've ever seen one - didn't know they existed - and it was pure white.
